This is the statement released by Northumbria police regarding Kenya’s David Rudisha and Britain’s Mo Farah.
“We were called to central Newcastle today after reports of a speeding object on the Quayside.
Our officers attended and found two men claiming that they were Olympic gold medallists and had set off our speed cameras in a practice jog.
They kept telling us to Google Mo Farah and David Rudisha but we weren’t having any of it so decided they needed to pay a visit to custody.
Due to a lack of evidence we had to release them without charge after a brief chat in the back of our police car.
Amazing how police can be creative to promote community integration!
